Macedonia-England 1:2 reportaza
Cyber-Man The supporter group "Majmuni" so far has attended many matches of the Macedonian Football and Handball national teams.For the match against England which was played on Sep. 6th 2003 was another opportunity for a road trip to support our national team.Right after the friendly game against Albania which was played in our hometown Prilep,we started getting ready for a trip to Skopje for the Macedonia-England game.Before the match we held a couple meetings where we talked about specific things for our support for the Macedonian National Team.Thats where we decided to make the flag "First Two Kings - Macedonia vs England" and it would have the two flags with crowns above them.Even though there was suppose to be coreography in the stands it never happened because of explained reasons."Tutunski Kombinat" - Prilep were the ones who helped us out especially with the bus rides.It was decided to leave from Prilep at 12:30. All of us meet at "Pred Reklami" at 12:15, but we had to wait until 12:50 for the bus to officially leave with drinks and food.Like always "Majmuni" were equiped with supporters gear like flags,scarfs,jerseys,hats and everyone was joyfull and ready to get going for the game in Skopje.At Pletvar they told us that the road had been mined, so we had to wait 20 minutes for it the road to be cleared.On the road we were greeted by many uncoming automobiles and trucks which gave us there full support.During the whole trip no one stopped singing and yelling slogans, it was louder and louder as we got to Skopje were we got the full support for the Skopje citizens on the streets.At 15:30 we were already infront of the stadium again singing our songs.Here is where the provocations came from our rival supporter group Komiti from Skopje. At first while getting to the stadium one idiot swore at us and then right after that one person from our group caught him but a bigger incident was prevented because we didnít want some idiot to ruin the fun we were having.After we got through the first police patrol infront of the entrance,one smaller group of Komiti started again to swear and yell provacative slogans towards us (perhaps jelousy on there part cause some of they weren't allowed in the stadium) but there was no bigger incident there either cause they right after that they ran away.Getting through the police patrols was hassle free without any incidents, but our hard objects were taken away from us for security reasons only a few people who smuggled them in kept them.Inside the east terrance we occupied one block of space which was secured for us and then right after some people from Skopje and Veles joined us.From other Supporter groups nothing not a shreak or a peak.Komiti barely had 100 members there and Loyal Fans only had 30- 40 members.During the first half the enjoyment and fun was a lot better same as the supporting with Macedonia leading 1-0."Majmuni" were the only ones in the crowd singing supporter songs no one else in the stadium joined us so it was annoying.All the other knew was "Macedonia Macedonia" and "Fuck You England" ,so we were left by ourself to honor the Macedonia Tifo Scene with only 80 of us there.At halftime we used the time to talk and get to know some of small amount of English fans in attendance on our side of the stadium.As a gift we gave them a scarf of our club FC Pobeda Prilep and some information about our group "Majmuni Prilep" .And for memories of the match they wanted to take a picture with the girls that were with us and there scarfs that said "Macedonia" .Too bad there prediction of them winning 2-1 came true and that was the reason at the end there was less and less support from the stands.But in the end the hardworking Macedonian players were sent off the field with an applouse from us and we started to head back to Prilep a little upset with the loss but very satasfied with players hardwork.On the way out there was no incidents at all like always when the supporters group "Majmuni Prilep" is in question.
